"What's Wrong with this Viking?" Competition
Lord John the Tall has agreed to be our Anti-Viking! He will don no less than 10 things NOT Viking and see if people can guess what they are. He will sport his attire all day and walk about, and will "grade" the papers and pick the winner. The one person closest to gettin' them all correct will win a prize. At feast our "Anti-Viking" will do a "Show & Tell", then announce the winner!

But wait.... There's more!
We have Newbie Classes & Fiber Classes!

Children's Activities Will be held throughout the day. Parents are strongly encouraged to donate 30 minutes per child during the day (not everyone all at once) towards volunteering with activities. Please see the MOC for the sign-up sheet and schedule. The continued support & volunteerism of Gleann Abhann Parents is greatly appreciated and applauded.

We are blessed yet again, to have Smythkeep's long-suffering... ever patient... always creative... Mistress of Children, to teach and entertain our young...Vikings. Please remember to lend a hand (& a pat on the back!)

Please Bring Your Feast Gear! (Make sure your Newbies have feast gear) so you can eat! mmmm....
